Middlesbrough vs Norwich Prediction & Match Preview

Middlesbrough vs Norwich
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 30th March 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Riverside Stadium (Middlesbrough).

Norwich faces a tough task this weekend, as they are on the road, against Middlesbrough, a pretty tough customer. In the meantime, closest competitors for the title, Sheffield United, and Leeds have been allotted much lighter opponents. In spite of the challenge they face, the team is equipped to take on the pressure. The potential champions enjoy the pole position for a reason.

Middlesbrough is really in danger of getting evicted from the playoff spots. They managed just a single point from the last four match-days, and in the duration, several playoff hopefuls have caught up. On top of that, they are supposed to welcome the best team in the competition. Their problems seem to have no end.

Middlesbrough vs Norwich Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The last six fixtures in a row had just one of the team on the scorecard.

Middlesbrough vs Norwich Prediction

Norwich is easily the best team in the whole of Championship. They have recorded the most number of wins, lost the fewest, and scored the most number of goals. They are also on a six-game winning streak and were unbeaten in 21 of their last 24 matches. The team also managed to score two or more goals in nine of their last twelve attempts. They are also on another streak of three straight away wins, and lost just twice in their last 20 attempts away from home.

Going on, Norwich found the back of the net in 21 of their 22 away fixtures and did so twice or more in four of the last five. Importantly, they won the last four h2h ties in a row and recorded clean sheets in each one of them as well. They are also unbeaten at this venue for the last five years.

In addition, Middlesbrough lost their last three matches in succession. They were winless in seven of their last nine ties, and in nine of their last twelve at home. And finally, since Norwich is aware of the easier fixtures allotted to their nearest competitors, count on them to not bottle this tie.

A tough, but convincing win for the league-toppers is in order.
